As they move in for the attack, the mystical scene slowly fades from vision.... This dreamlike scene was once everyday lif

The Metis The Metis were partly french and partly indian. Their leader was called Louis riel. Following the Union of the Hudsons Bay Company and the North West Company in 1821, trading had been reorganized in order to reduce expenses. Since there was no longer competition in the fur trade, it was unnecessary to have two or more posts serving a single trading district. For this reason, some posts had been closed and the number of brigades reduced. This reorganization had led to some unemployment

Until the late eighteenth century any land located beyond the Alleghan
Until the late eighteenth century, any land located beyond the Alleghany mountains was believed to be savage, uninhabited land. Thus, it became known as the American frontier. According to Turner, the definition of frontier means, the meeting point between savagery and civilization and a region of sparse settlement. 1 With the overwhelming number of frontiersmen invading this uninhabited land, many myths about winning the West arose, some containing truth, while others neglecting to tell the

· Indian Suffrage Before the English arrived in the New world and began creating colonies, the American Indians lived in harmony and peace with natures. The American Indians were skilled hunters, farmers and used everything in their environment for survival or for essential necessities.

The American Indians never considered the lands their property because it's belong to God and no one have the right to buy, sell, nor own i

Question: Does the white man attempt to care for or respect the earth? Claim: Indians share common thoughts on different aspects of the earth on how the white man does not care for or respect it.

The old west has been portrayed truly and falsely through art, music, and literature from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s up till this day when illustrated through movies. Artistic expression and communication presented the realities and illusions of the old west, some of which attracted various people there, while keeping others at home. Beginning with art, one of the main painters of these years (1860-1900) was Frederick Remmington. He painted over 2,700 pictures of the frontier. One example

Pastoralism is an economy based on herding. Pastoralists maintain herds of animals and use their products to support themselves directly and to exchange with other civilizations. It is especially associated with such terrain as steppes, rolling hills, grasslands, and the like-areas of low rainfall where cultivation is difficult without irrigation, but where grasses are plentiful enough to support herds of animals.1 Pastoralism was originally founded in the old world.

The history of the expansion of the American frontier has been one mired in controversy. Historians, such as Frederick Turner, have always referred to American expansion and the Western frontier as the settlement of an untamed wilderness. This view, however, is false. Long before Columbus even reached the “New World” a vast civilization, comparable to that of Europe, had established

Business strive for high production at low cost. This would result in the highest profit for a company. To many businesses, this is only a mirage. This is because the 'low cost' of the business usually results in a 'high cost' for the employees. This high cost is lower quality workplace items, lower salaries, less benefits, etc. These costs create an upset workplace environment. Companies understand that the more efficient their workers are, the more productive their business will become. Altho
